PAYM Service-Learning Festival 2009

17 November 2009

Edmund, Hock Rong and I attended the inaugural PAYM Service-Learning Festival 2009. The festival comes 4 years after the inception of PAYM Service Learning Clubs (SLCs) in secondary schools. The SLCs partner their respective Community Club/Centre's Youth Executive Committees (YECs), leveraging on the existing grassroots resources to organise projects that benefit the community.

The event was graced by Dr Mohamad Maliki Osman, Dr Mohamad Maliki Osman, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of National Development, MP for Sembawang GRC & Adviser to Central Youth Council.

Outside the Brickworks Auditorium, the meritorious award winners of the Project Accolade displayed booths featuring their winning projects.

Bedok North Secondary School SLC, which partners Eunos CC YEC, won 2 meritorious awards, 1 in the school-level category (Project Care) and 1 in the community-level category ("Are Youths Stressed?" forum). I was excited when I heard that the SLC students that I mentored for the forum won. It was a lot of hard work and effort put in.

Looking forward a BIG win next year too!
